Atlanta Foam Fabricators is working to preserve and recycle

Atlanta Foam Fabricators Green Action


Atlanta Foam has recycled for 3 decades!

That is correct. For more than 30 years Atlanta Foam Fabricators has recycled all of its excess Urethane Foam. These trimmed off pieces from our die presses, water jet cutters, and routers are compacted and then shipped off to a carpet pad manufacturer for processing.

Recycling at Atlanta Foam FabricatorsThis padding is the result of grinding this scrap foam and then bonding it into a unified block. This new 'bun' is then trimmed down into sheets that we are all familiar as carpet padding.

BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE. In 2007, Atlanta Foam Fabricators made a decision to continue the tradition of 'keeping our scrap foam out of landfills.

Polyethylene scrap foam has long been a point of frustration for Atlanta Foam due to its inability to be processed for recycling at the point of post fabrication. As a bulky-lightweight item it was not cost effective for shipping to a recycling facility.

We have solved that! We installed a machine that processes our scrap PE into convenient 6" x 6" x 40" logs. These 'purposeful plastic posts' are placed on skids that are easily loaded on a trailer earmarked for final processing for recycling. These take new shape in the form of plastic lumber, furniture, pinestraw, etc.
